    What Is SU2C?

    For the first time in history, we can imagine stopping cancer in its tracks.

    Stand Up To Cancer’s (SU2C) mission is to raise funds to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now.

    SU2C brings together the best and the brightest researchers and mandates collaboration among the cancer community. By galvanizing the entertainment industry, SU2C has set out to generate awareness, educate the public on cancer prevention and help more people diagnosed with cancer become long-term survivors.

    1 in 2 MEN and 1 in 2 WOMEN in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. We're investing in the future of cancer research, bringing new treatments to patients faster.
